Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - FRONT PAGE - By Lynn Kut­ter

The an­nual school elec­tions will be Tues­day, Sept. 19, and Farm­ing­ton, Prairie Grove and Lin­coln school boards all have races for each of their open po­si­tions.

Farm­ing­ton

School Dis­trict also is ask­ing its reg­is­tered vot­ers to al­low the dis­trict to ex­tend debt to ac­quire bonds.

The school’s mill­age rate would re­main the same at 42.6 mills. If the dis­trict is al­lowed to ex­tend debt an­other 10 years, it would give the dis­trict the pos­si­ble op­tion of ac­quir­ing about $4 mil­lion in bonds to use for Phase 3 of the high school cam­pus.

Early vot­ing opens Tues­day, Sept. 12, at Wash­ing­ton County Court­house and con­tin­ues through Mon­day, Sept. 18. Hours to vote will be 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the week­days.

For elec­tion day, polls will be open 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Reg­is­tered vot­ers in the three school dis­tricts can cast bal­lots at any of the elec­tion cen­ters open that day.
